FairPoint Communications, Inc., a leading provider of advanced communications services in Vermont, will be the official communications provider for the 25th KeyBank Vermont City Marathon on Sunday, May 26 in Burlington.

“We knew we could count on FairPoint to get us the technology and support we need on a day with thousands of athletes literally running through the streets of Burlington,” said Peter Delaney , executive director of RunVermont, marathon organizers. “That trust means one less thing to worry about so I can put my complete focus on making it a great and safe day for everyone.”

Mike Smith , FairPoint’s Vermont state president, who is also running the marathon, said the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon is a great event for Burlington.

“FairPoint is proud to be the official communications provider to the marathon and what it means for avid runners, their friends and families and to Burlington.”
